Life Work Infusion®: A Modern Approach
“Work-life balance” is an outdated and unrealistic notion. We infuse our teas, martinis, chocolates, and olive oils to make them taste better or seem healthier. Instead of drinking the “corporate Kool-Aid,” try our Infusion approach. We will help you identify and incorporate into your life the distinctive “ingredients” to “nourish” your success and ability to integrate the professional and personal.
Coaches are not just for pro athletes. We all get stuck sometimes or can ‘up our game’ even further. Working with a coach is considered a privilege and a sign that your organization values you and your contributions enough to invest in your future growth. A coach acts as a confidential partner who assists you in accelerating your personal and/or professional success. Get a coach on the sidelines of your life.
In order to stay relevant, organizations must be flexible and go beyond historical lip service and window dressing to create a truly functional workplace and adaptable culture where realistic work patterns meet the needs of employees AND employers. An effective flexible workplace strategy and sound implementation plan is critical for attracting, engaging, and retaining top talent.
